Website Updates and News
 "Responding to an Email" time.
Posted by Kuro-chan - January 12th, 2015 - 19:37
I received an email, and have been unable to send a reply, despite multiple attempts at doing so. As per site policy, I will post my reply here:

Dear StarSword,

I have indeed been made aware of the Odyssey uniform style set by Star Trek Online. As it stands, I find myself hesitant to work on such a set, due to the (in my opinion) excessive number of variants that exist. Combine that with the considerable number of department colours I would be required to do, it would end up dwarfing every other set in existence on my site, and then some. The investment required to make this would be quite considerable, to put it mildly.

Sincerely,
Kuro-chan.

Granted, having donations (like the last awesome one I just got) is definitely a step in the right direction to encourage me to work on such things.

 Woo! Huge donation just came in!

So I am "Yay" and "Happy" and "WOOO!" aaaand "YES! YES!!! YEEEESSS!" ... and other useful descriptions.

Now if I just figure out who made the donation, the more power for me.

UPDATE:I have been informed the person who submitted the donation goes by "cofctrekkie". He is awesome!

 I guess I need to do this...

 Okay, Heyallo.

I got your hugs smiley done.

And a couple other little fixes along the way.

TOS Reboot, 2230's integrated set is finished. I re-designed most of the pips and the backgrounds, incorporated those changes into the split/NOVA set and updated/included a sample image to go with them. I did not like the 'rough' texture of the uniforms before, especially since that design is inconsistent with how they appeared in the movies...

Kurojack, my 3rd mini-game, is now online. You will require an account to play it, since it deals with Kuro coins. (For which there is still nothing to spend it on, yet. One thing at a time, Kuro... One thing at a time.

I am starting to re-establish the voting system again. Unlike the last time, not only do you require an account, but you will also be limited to one vote per submission. The database does tracks which account votes where, to ensure we do not have a repeat of what happened with the older setup.

Heyallo is also demanding I make more smileys. Apparently, I need a hug smiley. This sounds pretty serious...

 That's one serious case of Caber Tossin', if you ask me!

Special thanks to Highlander for chipping in a donation to the site. I certainly appreciate it.

 A "Mild Entertainment" Update.
Posted by Kuro-chan - November 17th, 2014 - 04:07
I updated the "Poker Her" game to include the more "Bandwidth-friendly" version. I also added the slots game I had been working on, so there is more than one to play. At the rate this is going, Kuro-RPG may end up becoming an arcade of mini-games, rather than a rankset site.

Keep in mind, the games are made for those who registered and have active accounts on the site.

UPDATE: A heads up to the handful who have been playing the games: I made some mods to the achievement system so no one game is worth more than 100 pts. This lowered the poker values, but I also expanded the achievements for slots, bringing the total up to eight.

One of my 'really' older Enterprise sets was improperly linked to my database. That has been fixed. (Thanks to Kuro-chan for noticing).

Also, I heard an interesting rumor about one of our community members doing something potentially interesting to spice up the forums. Stay tuned.

 Oh Hey lookie, there be Bajorans about!
Posted by Heyallo - October 29th, 2014 - 02:07
So Kuro has been a busy kuro since the Bajorans came to town, they even got shiny new uniforms

Bajoran Militia (Integrated)
Bajoran Militia (Nova 3 Style)

My only thought about all this was Kuro imitating bones:

"I'm an artist, not a tailor!"

 Adding a new section always seems simple, yet complicated...

For a little bit of site history, I added a section called "Version History", which includes screencaps of the many versions of the site taken over the last nine years. Looking at them, it amazes me how much change this site has gone through... I kept the summaries brief and 'to the point' of what happened during the year. Looking through my posts over the years helped me to recall things I may have missed along the way.

I also fixed a few bugs and updated a few little graphics along the way. Cleanup is rarely a bad thing.
